Welcome to SUGSS Meeting 2018
Welcome Upper GI and General Surgical Colleagues from throughout NSW, across Australia and even across the ditch.
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the Annual Sydney Upper GI Surgical Society (SUGSS) meeting. Again we have a fun, fully packed one day program, conveniently placed on a Saturday, with Dinner that night, making it easy to squeeze into your hectic schedule.
As has been recent tradition we are again in beautiful Double Bay, a stone's throw from both the CBD and stunning beaches and coves, and on the banks of the Sydney Harbour in pleasant early summer Sydney weather.
After last year's predominately HBP themed meeting we are focusing this year on all things Gastro-oesophageal reflux. It will include some great videos, debates, and controversy with lots of opportunity for audience involvement. Contributing will be a world class field of local, interstate and international speakers who have pioneered surgical techniques, research and innovation including Steven Demeester (Portland Oregon), Reginald Bell (Colorado), Greg Falk (Sydney), David Gotley (Brisbane), Geoff Kohn (Melbourne), Garett Smith (Sydney) and David Watson (Adelaide).
For fellows, registrars and junior doctors, it will be a great opportunity, not only to keep abreast of cutting edge changes in surgery, but also to meet current and potential mentors and be stimulated to consider future fellowship and career opportunities. Not to mention a serious shot at the $5000 on offer as part of our SUGSS Medtronic Travelling Scholarship. Don’t miss out on this - see the abstract section - nominations close 15th October.
Location again is the iconic refurbished and very famous Double Bay hotel (think - Michael Hutchence, Madonna, George Bush, Mel Gibson) with cocktails to follow and another fun conference dinner onsite in this beautiful location.
So come along, expand your horizons, get involved in some great case studies, heckle some videos, and enjoy a great day’s program and a fun evening with like minded colleagues in beautiful surrounds.
We look forward to seeing you there.
David Martin & Michael Talbot
